So me being behind in my drawings worked out to the best in the end as today it’s my gorgeous twin nieces second birthday. Look how that worked out.. So I attempted to draw them…now according to Richard apparently I can’t draw ages.. which might be true as the twins look like 10 in this drawing. Plus they have no hands…they do actually have hands I just can’t draw hands, so there are polka dots to try and deter away from the no hand situation.. (have said hands too many times now). Which in turn made the picture very busy..


So yeah a total success….remember this doesn’t do them any justice, it’s like a cartoon version of them.. But here is a big happy birthday for Amelia and Eliza, from Aunty Sophie and Uncle Richard.

Note. Richard did not help draw the image…

 I like the writing… poor chums, they are so much cuter in real life I promise you!  ted and rabbit who made an appearance , I think are dead on. Also Eliza doesn’t wear hoop earrings, that’s just an awkward place polka dot.

Anyway we are going back this weekend to celebrate with them, so wait for our DIY post coming up on Saturday for what we did for their presents!!

Happy Thursday all


So I am finally over the dreaded bug. The plus outcome, I have finally lost a stone now..

Moving on. I have been back in my home town this weekend, it’s nice coming home to family, my old room, friends and home cooked food. Did a bit of shopping with  the mother, pictures to come one day, and even got Richard a few things too!

But best of all I got to spend some time with my nieces. Now below we have Amelia, I was unsuccessful at being able to get a picture of Eliza, she was just to quick for me. There little bow clips were the cutest though with my little ponies print on. It occured to me that this will be the thrid time this year that I have seen my family, living across the country can be quite difficult but we have fun when we go back.



But here’s a quick picture of the both of them with my dad, (Bampi to them) We are totally in the age of technology, as they were sat on his lap watching nursery rhymes being sung on You Tube on his Mac.

So both being from a big family, birthday present ideas can be difficult. Especially when there are so many birthdays close together. Richards birthday is in two weeks and then I have my adorable twin nieces, Amelia and Eliza’s second birthday a week after. With other babies on the way through friends and such, getting inspiration for the little bundles of joy can be difficult.

Last year we brought the twins a cherry tree. You may be asking why a tree, but we thought it would be lovely for it to grow as they do. Plus cherries come in pairs..right?

Anyway we got them some colouring stuff too. But as the little princesses they are and the masses of family and friends can sometimes leave  finding gifts tricky.


Just a quick photo of the infamous twins with their dad (my brother), adorable yet destructive. Kidding aren’t they just the cutest.
